A RUSTIC, RELAXING HIDEAWAY WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY. Experience an authentic country home overlooking Lake Trasimeno, basking in the Tuscan sun. Take a dip in our pool nestled on the hill, and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle with the outdoor kitchen, living areas, all with panoramic views of the lake. After two years of loving restoration, we are opening Casa Rosata to our guests. This is our home, that we are happy to share when we are not living here. Everything at Casa Rosata has been handpicked from around the world.
We hope you will enjoy it, and treasure it as much as we do.
Casa Rosata provides an inspiring yet relaxing ambience for families, friends. The 5x10 m swimming pool with a stunning lake view is located a couple of levels below the house, and is easily accessed from the side and the front of the house. There is a gazebo near the pool. The swimming pool is open from June to September. In July and August the house is available with the cottage and sleeps 10. During this period the pool is private. For the rest of the year the cottage is booked independently, and the pool and parts of the garden are shared with the guests in the cottage.
The house is arranged on two floors, with unique split levels within, interconnected by stairs. There is a living room on both floors, and a loggia (veranda) with a panoramic view of Lake Trasimeno that opens from the upstairs living room.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor, two double, one single, and another single that is connected to one of the double bedrooms (ie the exit from the master bedroom is via this single bedroom). There are two bathrooms, one is ensuite to the master bedroom.
The ground floor has a kitchen, dining room, a double bedroom and a bathroom. There is an additional living room and a cosy sun room, with glass doors that open into the garden and have a view of the lake.
The bathrooms are newly renovated in travertine stone. The master ensuite has a jacuzzi. The house is furnished with hand picked antique furniture, and art from around the world.
There is an informal outdoor kitchen area, with an area for outdoor dining.
The land around the house is suited to both sun and shade lovers. There is a thick cover of pine and cyprus trees around the house. The olive grove of 3.5 hectares extends down the hill and offers walking adventures, with numerous spots to enjoy the surrounding forest and lake. There is a 600 m private road that runs through the land upto the house. There are several areas around the house to dine and relax. If you visit in spring, you will enjoy the 1000 plus tulips and daffodils, and in summer our David Austin roses should be in full bloom. In Autumn, you can join the olive picking from the 300 olive trees, that are more than 100 years old. Winter is perfect for the fragrance of pine wood burning in our fireplace. What we love most about Casa Rosata and our neighbourhood, is the privacy, the unspoilt views of the lake and forest. There is a real sense of history, this is the hill where the famous Hannibal fought the Romans in 217 B.C. The town of Tuoro, and surrounds feel very authentic, no tourist buses in sight! Tuoro is an ancient, yet modern town. The centre is quaint, but with all conveniences, for example a pharmacy, bars, restaurants, a bank, ATM, post office. There is a large supermarket, and petrol pump in Tuoro just 2 km away.
Casa Rosata is perched just above Villa Baroncino, and perfect place to live for those attending weddings, or for the honeymooners.
Please note extra costs apply for central heating between October to May and for mid week linen change if this is required.
